Every winter I would take my family to Mai Po Wetlands Reserve in Norhtern Hong Kong for a charity hike and watch the thousands of migrating birds there. This year I am prepared to take my D2X and borrow my friend's 300mm to take some photos. But my wife is very strong against going because of the bird flu issue. I think it's a bit over-reacting, but agree it's better to play safe. Then I think of the bird shooters of our Cafe. I know it's not a big threat right now (no case in US so far) but guys, just be careful and watch the development closely.
